award 3

MSI R6970 Lightning graphic cards inherit the impressive Power4 architecture from previous Lightning cards along with improved components and design in four areas. The PWM module is twice as large as before and provides double the amount of current to the GPU. Memory has its own independent power supply using an 8-pin connector for minimum interference to greatly increase overclocking potential. The next-generation Proadlizer capacitor increases signal stability by leaps and bounds while CopperMOS, the industry's best MOSFET, provides the GPU with a large and stable power supply.

The all new Twin Frozr III cooling design utilizes the innovative Propeller Blade technology to double the amount of airflow compared to conventional fans. The airflow also covers a large surface to remove heat quickly and effectively, and when you add in twin 9cm PWM fans, SuperPipe technology, and the Form-in-one heatsink, the result is that GPU operating temperature decreases 26°C lower than the reference board when the R6970 Lightning is operating under full loads. Fan noise is also 11dB lower in addition to having much higher overclocking potential.

R6970 Lightning graphics card comes with the latest version of MSI's exclusive Afterburner V2.1.0 overclocking utility. The utility not only adjusts GPU and memory clock but also manage the GPU/Memory/VDDCI voltages to maximize overclocking potential.

For hardware enthusiasts, R6970 Lightning comes with exclusive extreme overclocking features. Apart from V-Check Points and V-Switch. Dual Bios and XtremeCool3 switches help to effectively prevent potential problems stemming from liquid nitrogen cooling. PWM Clock Tuner also helps to increase overclocking potential.

R6970 Lightning graphics card uses top-quality Military Class II components. These high-quality components not only increase the graphics card's overall service life but also enhance the GPU stability.
